Universal Truths

 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
                                                                                    Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice 
All happy families resemble one another, every unhappy family is unhappy after its own fashion.
                                                                                    Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina  

Another universal truth I've found is that everyone likes to talk about themself.  The shyest person can be drawn out simply by finding and listening to what they are most interested in.

We interact with each other on a daily basis yet don't often stop to think how vast the differences in perspective are.  Or how many similarities we have.

Love for friends and family, work, need for companionship, hobbies or interests, all are universal.  So is the desire to excel at something, and to be recognized for it.  A good listener is more valued than a good speaker, and much harder to find.
